Dropped in for breakfast, what a good choice. The ‘Large’ breakfast was more than enough to keep me going most of the day! Friendly staff and quick service, great for a reasonably priced, filling way to start the day.

The menu isn’t huge but the food is lovely, the sandwiches are well filled and the ingredients are nice and fresh. The staff are really friendly and welcoming. We’ve visited 3 times this week already and will probably return again before we go home!
